Weekly Update from the President - July 30

Dear Kehila,

As we head into August, the focus for many people seems to be towards the upcoming Yomim Noraim and all the preparation that is involved. At YIGN, we are starting to prepare for the high holidays by arranging for minyanim, those who lead services, and of course seating for our large membership. Part of the focus as we start our new year is ensuring the financial health of our shul. Thank you to those who have already paid their membership dues for the coming year. As is traditional, we ask that all financial obligations to the shul are satisfied in order to secure seating for the holidays. 

As there seems to be an increase in COVID transmission in our area, there has been some discussion about the health and safety of our members in shul. We are fortunate that by and large, our adult and teen members are vaccinated and at a very low risk of exposure. Nevertheless, in an abundance of caution, we do our best to limit risk as much as possible. As weather permits, we will continue to hold our kiddushes outdoors. Of course our mask mandate is in place for anyone who is not fully vaccinated, including all children two years of age and older who are not yet eligible for vaccination. We ask all parents to help our efforts by keeping their children with them until groups begin, and ensure that their children are not allowed unattended in the halls of the shul.

We are just days away from our "BBQ Under the Stars" event. Thank you for the strong response and signup. There is still time to register for this event, so don't miss the opportunity to join us. Please note as discussed above, for the safety of those attending, we will be using food servers to minimize individual food contact.

Regards and Shabbat Shalom,


David Basaleli
